stranded mitttens


The blanket is blocking. After binding off last night, I washed it in Eucalan and laid it out to dry. This morning it still quite damp - looks like another several hours drying time needed. Can't wait to show it to you!

Next? These mitts have been in my Ravelry favourites for a while. In New Brunswick last November with Mom, I picked up some Grape coloured Regal yarn and heathered lilac yarn from the odds and ends bin at the Briggs & Little outlet store. Just loved the colours, didn't have a project in mind. Until I saw this pattern. Stranded mitts are likely to be twice as warm - perfect for the Warm Hands Network. And more challenging than a plain pair of mitts. Still, it feels odd to cast on mittens just as summer arrives.

they look great, but it is odd to be making them now while we have warm weather!
